Cocoa beans are little beans found in the pods that grow on cocoa trees. The pods are orange and are about as big as a small pumpkin.

When the pods are ready to be picked, they are cut open so the beans inside can be taken out and roasted. Roasting the beans dries them so they can crushed into cocoa powder.

Cocoa trees only grow in climates where it is hot and humid all year long. These trees grow slowly, so it takes three to five years foe cocoa trees to produce pods with beans for making chocolate.
